social safety net to perhaps pentagon spending. i'm looking at a graph that shows pentagon-related spending to be 60% of the budget. we need to change the focus away from the social safety net. all of the money goes back into the economy and perhaps some of the fat cats in virginia and other places that make lots and lots of money on defense spending. >> bill: got it, tony. >> tony, i just saw a graph. that senator manchin showed me yesterday. that showed that the troops -- we've actually -- we actually have the same number of troops we've had in the last few years. the huge increase in pentagon spending is consultants and is outside contractors. and even he was saying wait a second, we have to actually look at this. we have to look -- that's why the balance issue becomes so important. so instead of saying on the education spending, i can tell you what that money goes for. that money goes for head start slots. that money goes for making sure that in the kids who have gotten the worst end of the stick in the recession they get -- federal money for that. so a balanced approach is rea

declassified right away. >> if michael moore had gone to the pentagon and said i wanted to do a movie about the bin laden raid, they would probably not have set up meetings with top people in the c.i.a. and joint special operations commander, those involved in the command, right? you have this very selective leaking process that goes on. it's widespread throughout the government now where you have this really powerful executive branch that will only leak things or declassify things when it makes them look good and use classification as a weapon to attack critics and to try to keep things that might be embarrassing, so there's no consistency at all. i think that that's the real problem here. >> cenk: i think that's 100% right. on the other hand, the republicans of course as usual go over board with their criticism. i want to show you something about that from nightline. >> as far as the controversy goes, you know how can i put this. it was an election year. it was surreal and bizarre to have i mean, there were major players in the republican party characterizing the script and the movi

pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned, the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lurking out there is the debt ceiling and it seems necessary to me to include as part of this grand bargain if one is ever struck, an agr

to cut. there are two things he said and i respect him very much. he said number one the pentagon. the fraud, the excess, the waste. that has got to come down. he said what else? what else are we going to cut? he said the healthcare. we have to improve healthcare and the whole issue is if you get the universal healthcare, then you've avoided this medicaid medicare, you know, whatever and it is more efficient because you're not sending money -- spending money for profit. you're doing it for the v.a. and for everybody. >> bill: i forget, doris igor, jump in here, too i forget the exact number but the congressional budget office proved that -- you're right. single payer would be even more efficient but we're not going to go there because we didn't. but obama care would save hundreds of millions -- hundreds of billions of dollars in delivery of healthcare costs by making it more efficient and bringing more people into the system and therefore have more capacity to deliver. >> you lower the rate of growth which is the key to lowering cost and the irony is you have boehner and cantor sa
